CA Rn license, relocation

  1. hello
    I am new here
    I am a foreign-educated nurse, and I have got Michigan Rn license. I sent my application for RN licensure by endorsement to CA nursing board at the begining of this month, but I haven't got any response. Does anybody know usually how long it will take to get my licensure by endorsement? I also applied for a temorary license, does that mean I can only work under a RN supervision until I get my permanent license?
    I am living in New York now, and I am considering relocating to CA because the awful weather here . anybody can recommend a place in CA with beautiful weather, low cost of living along with a nice hospital?
    :imbar sorry for asking too much. any information will be greatly appreciated!

    By most accounts, the licensing process has been delayed by at least three months since California's new ratio law has prompted a flood of licensing applications. You might have to wait awhile.

    As far as affordable places to live, the only ones I'm aware of are in rural areas. And I mean, really rural. I bought a house in a somewhat affordable semi-rural area in SoCal, and prices have jumped 40 percent just in the past year. I guess it's a combination of low interest rates and last year's fires taking out so many homes. But the housing market is absolutely insane in California right now.
